Why Heater Manufacturers Prefer Brass Tube: Exploring Brass’ Benefits


In many parts of the country, a heater is not just a luxury but a necessity. Can you imagine taking a morning shower in the winter without warm water? Of course, a heater is a significant investment for most households, which is why water heater companies design their products for longevity. And when it comes to hot water distribution lines, a high-quality brass tube is often the go-to option for most manufacturers.

Standing Up to the Heat

What makes brass tubing particularly adept at handling hot water? This all boils down to a scientific concept called the Arrhenius Equation. Simply put, this equation states that the higher the temperature in a system, the faster the rate of corrosion will be. More specifically, every 10°C increase in temperature will double the corrosion rate of a given metal. As such, steel pipes are often worn out much faster if used in hot water distribution lines.
